Jamshedpur: The first day of the two-day recruitment camp held at Golmuri sub regional employment exchange saw thousand youths trying their luck.
Ancillaries unit of Adityapur industrial area and also from other parts of the country like Daimler India Commercial Vehicles Limited from Chennai are participating in the camp. Daimler will hire 100 associate trainees.
Firms are offering for diploma engineers, ITI certificate holders, former servicemen and sales executives, there are opportunities for also those who have studied till Class VII or Class XII in entry level jobs of office administration in private sectors.
Since its inception in 2009 the state managed job fairs organized by state labour, employment and training department are organized in the district headquarters wherein those already registered with the exchange or those not registered can benefit of job offers.
However, due to lack of communication, skilled and semi-skilled literate youths from rural areas usually miss out from participating in the job fairs usually held for two-days.
Assistant director of sub regional employment exchange at Golmuri, Shashi Bhushan Jha said the camp started on overwhelming note.
The employment exchange officer has been asked by the East Singhbhum administration to conduct camps in other areas affected by LWE such as Dumuria, Ghorabanda (both in Ghatshila sub division of the East Singhbhum district), Potka and Patamda blocks (also in East Singhbhum).
After getting a feel of the response in the rural areas we would be approaching West Singhbhum and Seraikela-Kharsawan district administration for necessary approval on holding the government sponsored fairs in their rural areas, even in Saranda, the officer said.
The Golmuri exchange has offered jobs through rojgar melas to 507 job seekers in 2009, 1648 job seekers in 2010 and till November, 2011 it had provided 1,490 jobs covering Kolhan region.
“The idea behind organising camp is because of the industrial background and presence of commercial organisations in good strength. We are happy to see the innovative step being taken to reduce unemployment rate in the district.
I think more such steps need to be taken. If private companies can do why not Government,” informed an officer.
The organisers are hopeful those unemployed youths who have no proper academic qualification or any job skill along with those for those who have better academic qualification and job skills would get oppourtunity to be placed.
Unemployed youths including girls from different towns of the Jharkhand particularly, Chaibasa, Ghatsila, Ranchi, Chakradharpur and Bokaro are expected to turn up for the two-day fair.
